Guestbook comments from the owner:

We truly loved our vacation at this beach house. The owners were nice and easy going and we got the feeling that they really cared about us having a great experience. The pool was big enough for the whole family to enjoy together. We definitely used the golf cart a lot more than we thought. The house was very clean and spacious. The beds were comfortable. We definitely recommend this house to anyone coming to Destin for vacation. My wife is already planning our return trip for next year.

Beautiful home and location

We loved our stay at the Kokonut Hut. The house was well stocked with everything we needed and the owners were very nice and easy to deal with. We rented the golf cart and my littles were crazy about riding on it. The pool was big enough for everyone and we will definitely recommend this home to others.

Great stay, great hosts.

We had a great stay over the Christmas-New Year’s week. There were a couple small things that came up that the hosts were very quick to address and they were great communicators. It really was a pleasure renting from someone who cares and is concerned with the guests’ comfort and are so responsive! It made our trip that much better. The house is in a great location and is a great value. It has nearly everything you need for a plug and play beach vacation. Highly recommend renting for the full week to get the golf cart as part of your fees.Rent it. You won’t be disappointed!!

It was a fantastic experience!!

The house has one of the best location in Destin, just a few blocks from the beach. It is gorgeous inside, well decorated, super clean and has everything that you could possible need for a relaxed vacation. The back yard with the pool make you feel like you are in your own private oasis. Oh! and we didn't even have to use the car to go to the beach or pick up some errands because it came with a golf cart!! Thank you Phil and Andrea we will be back soon for sure!!!
